Choosing a contractor in any business for any home repair is difficult. Just about anyone out there that can put a roof on can make it look good when it’s first installed. The problem is, when there is an issue with the roof, did the contractor offer any roof warranties?
A roof warranty is only as good as the person that installs your new roof. The problem is, roofing contractors in many communities across America are in and out of business so quickly that it’s difficult to get a warranty claim covered in the event something happens.
For those contractors who do not like to honor warranties, they will tell you that the warranty is from the manufacturer of the roofing materials that were used. That’s a nice way of saying, my companies not responsible to cover your roof warranty. And that is if you can find the company five years after they installed your roof, which in many cases you cannot. This is why it is best to choose an established roofing contractor in your area. Do not make pricing and cost your #1 priority. There is a balance between cost efficiency and customer service, and you need to strike that balance.
Roofing materials do deteriorate and are affected by climate conditions and the elements. That means that they are going to break down. Just like your car breaks down. When your car breaks down you take it to the dealer, when your roof breaks down you take it to your contractor, if you can even find a quality contractor. When you’re looking for a roofing contractor, check the offered warranty. Choose a contractor that has established themselves in the community over a period of time. Choose anyone less than that and you are at risk for wasting your money and potentially not getting a warranty claim covered in the event that your roof has an issue.
